Launch time

The Formula 1 teams have been busy over the winter holidays, as the various team Elves’ have been putting the finishing touches on their 2008 machinery. At first McLaren was planning to not have any “Pomp ‘N Circumstance” this year with the traditional glitz ‘N glamour of a launch party, but they’ve changed their minds. Meanwhile Williams appears to have taken a powder and will not have a lauch party after all, while I’m not sure what Toro Rosso’s plans are exactly?
